Excellent detail along coast and inland to include the city down to individual buildings. At lower left is a bird's-eye "View of the Town and Mission of Santa Barbara." This is the only Coast Survey work done on Santa Barbara.
Fine impression on sound paper with full margins. Toned along two fold lines, else very good to fine.
